Really angry really angry. You restart after the sixth caution flag of the day this one for Kyle Busch who continues. Actually all the Gibbs cars have been problems with the right front today Denny Hamlin at the wall on turn to. So did -- got a home and Kyle Busch in turn one. -- -- -- -- -- Trying to figure out what. And if you think about it to give scorers they were one of the organizations have any issues in Atlanta much different racetrack from Bristol couple weeks ago -- those right front tires tires in general. What -- the polls that are. Now in 33 position and Denny Hamlin is back on the lead lap he's in nineteen. Ready to go green Kurt Busch. Mark Martin from thirteenth up to second. Greg Biffle. Jimmie Johnson -- -- the front. Jeff -- six. Dale Earnhardt junior. Jamie Mac. Like Kurt Busch is gonna make an outside -- prevailed Jimmie Johnson the 48 was trying to make it work but look at his teammate mark mark. -- run off to the bottom that they have held march or so much I can't believe how much better isn't what. Ministry started at thank you got all the -- -- on the bottom today. But bush gets such a good launch off the top -- with the into the corner. He is denying Mark -- a chance to lead this race for the first time. They want him that restart he took off like John force of an -- the -- -- managing them very Grayson was. Kasey Kahne is back in the race fifteen laps down after making. Repairs. That's not mention that last run was a little over fifty laps big burden was telling me -- information that can parker -- -- absolutely perfect after that -- no issues and -- That's what drives good you're crazy you know. A bunch of guys have trouble but a whole lot of guys don't have true. Kurt Busch in front of Mark Martin Jim Johnson. -- From Kevin Harvick. Trying to chase down. 77 Sam hornish. Bracing for 23. And dale junior's been trying -- inside on -- -- -- seventy mainly might make it work this time he's -- We'll tell you what that's another car a little bit like his teammate mark mortgages keep make it better and better every pit stop this is somethin' that has -- the. He could make progress now. Again both cars were there so good -- from the center of the corner all they really are celebrating our with -- I know we'll spend. Present. So careful what you just don't want a tight -- thing up so much start working it right front tire you'll be in trouble. Jamie Mac it's by Jeff Burton. And Jamie Mac you mean he might be sick that britney's mood of the front. Trying Montoya of Lewis back slipped to eighth place now they don't back the big -- report from Jamie McMurray unlike at the speed ways. Both of the windows are open on the car that we don't read them right side windows that's another air for -- to -- And it and really with the full effect of this racetrack the track itself and in this stadium effect around the outside. Things hanging over this -- practically. The overcast cloudy day like this. That's at least be some tough here was. Carbon monoxide and heat and everything that the driver breathing the dust and everything. But now these guys have these carbon monoxide filters despite all the difference in the world and how they feel like racism. Dale junior just shot test Jeff Burton who junior up to six as we watched three. Of the four. Roush Fenway cars. In a row but like Carl Edwards who's sixteen. Respectful -- something for. Yeah we're approaching 300 lap mark and we still have 29 cars on the lead lap we only have six cars out of this race so far. Remember about physics understanding to race. Average of 36 cars normally are running at the end of this race -- always found a way to repair and get them back out there. -- Mark Martin. Right back. Remains his fighters not. I'm pretty sure he got to the message out but I'm pretty sure depending on -- fly. You know that they're not teammates and mark might do it for someone but I don't think her. Might change his mind of -- begins to pressure him but right now. -- under no pressure from the fine. That's darn box live from Bristol Tennessee it's time for AT&T. Rain break we've gone 304 laps. 500 Kurt Busch. Who won in Atlanta video off week. Trying to go back to back the only other time he's won back to back races 2002. Martinsville. And Atlanta we've had -- point one lead changes six different leaders six cautions and how about Dale Earnhardt junior was -- And a streak of 61 races without a win his jockey himself up to six Jeff Hammond. I think it's more important right now that dale junior have really solid run -- started back. And eight -- position he's been slowly but steadily. Making -- -- -- -- right guard and they find themselves up battling for a top five position and that's what we haven't seen him a lot this year and I think it's good to see here. Risk and also Bristol Jeff Burton of places have -- -- -- pointed -- -- chance of success here before winning and in the -- businesses 33 race here. He's the kind of veteran driver who can endure race like this position himself. Just for the right time to make his move -- he's got the -- And I'm glad you said that way because I talked to Jeff all the way to the driver's meeting this morning and he says exactly that he's not trying to keep my nose clean up past the halfway point. We start trying to work my way up toward the front and once again he's doing exactly that that's the way you win your -- There's a bit of a long shot have a Marcus Ambrose of part of -- dory recently talked about the Cinderella story early NCAA tournament and he's a guy who last year finished in the top ten and -- Bristol races and we know he's doing he's more of a -- road course racer but. He seems to be hanging in your made up -- -- earlier pit road problem was well yeah I saw little bottle rack unit 47 car being driven apart from San resident yeah -- would come a long shot -- down. Under Australian but he don't call it a road racers call it a race. I mean this guy is really matured and developed a lot. If you can run well here Bristol -- you can run -- -- road course super speedway but he has -- I think. This brings the right track pretty short -- to -- racism like the double class of a lot of cars from the Tasmania. Australian and Tasmanian devil out of senator Stewart Haas racing Tony Stewart running Kate -- came indicate that voices to eBay. Ryan Newman who has not had a terrific here. But running okay today. Whether this they're trying to get something going here this organization that's not a Tony Gibson. A while back preceded in death. We fought our way back and get in the chase a year ago we think we can do it again which you've got to start turn -- and the day today you've got to start building -- -- is in short track -- is really where. Rhonda -- Scott lot of strong. Potential and he knows seeking the job that your presence -- that they didn't come -- I think for the top ten feet. You look at the leader Kurt Busch the blue -- dealing with some traffic here. -- lap but go with Elliott Sadler part of that -- -- mean obviously -- here -- this is passed by the blue -- and he's up time. At number ten Carty is really working well in the bottom side is racetrack people that were. -- backs off a little bit the same city slides up BC database and here recount. It's hard to spot between -- but Mark Martin Jimmie Johnson running second and third Jimmie Johnson dominated the first hundred. Twenty laps or so leading 77 of those. But as we said Kurt -- and talking to Roger -- -- talked about how Kurt Busch has. Taken over more of a leadership role and had some problems in the past but deep maturity of Kurt -- talk about a brother Kyle. But the -- Kurdish run it's helped Donna can I believe are not like right that's -- Kozlowski and at Penske Racing. That's where experience comes into play -- won a lot of races how much garbage he's won a championship and that's what I think one of the reasons why project these human entry. Not only because the leadership capabilities but he likes eight of the driver this guy does have an -- doing. -- you text your opinion on who you think should winning AT&T fastest pit -- the year award. Points are awarded -- fastest at times just for -- election winning the race and most importantly your vote as well. It's C eight TC fastest pit -- the year award delivered by eighteen feet. The nation's fastest three G network we haven't seen. The hot tempers in the short -- we'll talk about but there's still plenty of time when I'm gonna say you're getting a little bit premature here by France and we've still got a long life together. I think anything's possible these guys they realize it's so difficult -- -- when you get somebody you're not my advice is to get down about fifty left together. This event and AT&T rays straight from the Hollywood hotel the -- -- the guys in the boot Darrell Waltrip were there Reynolds and Mike. Great battle here for fifth place Jamie McMurray. Trying to hold off Dale Earnhardt junior they've been chasing back and forth. Throughout working to -- lap traffic to get past Regan Smith. They had all but caught Greg Biffle one lap but -- and then that traffic seemed to separate them out a bit but it's. But Hillary's been running the high line and now drops low to get past Travis squabbles over Earnhardt -- not been able to do anything -- Observation on two -- unnoticed in Atlanta last week two weeks ago. The car when they're good to start the race but Eddington and it was a -- -- owner a little bit about mid race they were Arnold won't turn three delegation ya know city -- -- -- -- race they had -- Fixed up he's got a right front down. A little bit better overdosed. Caution is sound. Seventh caution of the day for -- New York's Regan Smith. Watched the nineteen of Elliott Sadler is about two laps earlier. -- Smith had been side by side quite a bit. The initial contact -- Back to nineteen came up trying to get in front of sending coroner just one quite clear. And then two laps later Smith went into the wall. With the right front -- -- -- it couldn't be happier to see that caution our ports later Kevin Harvick he was just about the following of the clutches of our later Kurt Busch series goes dry here and I'm here to place car right behind it so yeah he was. On the verge. Just not the kind of -- Kevin Harvick had -- our group was looking forward I think for the second time today Denny Hamlin. I would be a free pass card and I just think back to Atlanta you know they struggled Harvick did in Atlanta and they volley got a garden good enough division -- canned goods and he had been good since he got here and I'm really surprised me. It's feeding time at the zoo once again. Steve Burns is the -- I'm doing okay. And -- gonna -- I'm right aren't just when they're all the good thing. -- the right rear tire them. Kurt Busch who won this. Would normally good. -- -- -- -- Mark Martin speaker gained a spot on the erode their last visit marks and attract -- Justin didn't really. How to how to react like you wanted so they're gonna go away but you just didn't. And this stuff on the five that are still playing great music on the free side. Okay I think I'm happy holidays. I guarantee -- -- plans don't do anything to hurt the center. Kurt Busch will be first off pit road and there's a log jam right behind him. I believe we have a little road of the vast but -- -- that seventeen -- did you see thirteen spots with Matt Kenseth got a dual science project here. We'll about a 175 laps to go see how it works the. 175. To go old Kurt Busch Greg Biffle -- cancer. Jimmie Johnson. -- always been an action track whether it was the 1980s. -- of the 1960s or David pierce in Oklahoma movie for. The flag. And today 172 laps to go we'll beat Kurt Busch. Matt Kenseth Greg Biffle Jimmie Johnson. Dale Earnhardt junior. Spread brings you an inside look at what's happening now inside the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. -- -- Onboard communication. -- -- CNN. It's actually burning. No good. I don't know what it's. It's weird that the card but so -- getting started. And that if that's still free I don't that's a good. That's really going on that we can do about what our inner liners I try to run here but what are pressured the. From Orange car audio check out NASCAR Sprint Cup mobile and sprint dot com slash speed. So what dale junior but what I was wondering interns who is going to the rear of the field. Space too fast entering the pit road. Penalized in the -- line for the restart. Junior was in fifth place. Yeah this is a very long pit road as we document starts and turned to goes always back to turn 135. Miles an hour you have to do it in the curve on the apron as whales so. Had a lot of speeding penalty here today. You mentioned David Pearson and it reminded me would you say hello Larry his son who's in a hospital here and tri cities. Larry and I hope you can here's and I hope you're doing well in our prayers and thought through which you and your family. At an accident down period within that religious -- -- -- pretty big the other race relations. Broken ankle into places broken right hand fractured pelvis. Pretty hard hit -- harsh on him until the Mina took my breath her hope you're doing well. Kurt Busch is gonna bring into the green flag with a 169. Laps to go man can. Kids it tires is along side and bush gets up big joke and this obviously that's -- a bad colleges changing. We're going to be very anxious to see how it works out that seventy heart -- here. It worked out -- -- for about problems. Brad Kozlowski did it early in the race and was able to hang in the top ten you know this seems to be one of racetracks where I think maybe just staying on the old fort -- versus two tires sometimes works out better. And that's what Kozlowski if he did not come in for tires. And hung with the top ten so. You're right this is a strategy we've not seen today. From us somebody up only pack. But you wanna find out now you don't want to wait to late in the race. Kozlowski and -- side by side. We don't expect anything we don't even expect them a couple of. And race there this morning that. Gone Kevin Harvick vegetative and a rapid run in the middle -- -- right behind. He lacks the spirit of five. He's gonna watch this show. Harvick made his comments well known to the media. About the situation and the two players ball. Arbitration for patients every day just want to name. All laid out here. -- to their credit both Edwards and Kozlowski came out of the meeting with NASCAR and their car owners. Have we intend to racing each other -- would claim. That that incident is history. We're gonna move so you don't think just about his time these two guys run alongside each other none of them. I think the number one conclusion -- that trading values. The idea -- imitated that back I'm not a. Might like flipping a light situation Brad Kozlowski is lost they handled it well back Cadillac dvd -- Drives like -- thumb drive. Yes wow and car is so tight it's good. If -- adjustments for the last few stops. Look at this -- they're giving each other a lot of room on an extra -- For now Mike Carlson and he didn't finish the seventies and so hard to pass here we know probation. Whoa whoa great live below Martin the car they got and it's cars they got -- oh no no. Eric go Victoria piles in. Perfect just I tried to shoot to GAAP and again Clinton. And I Ambrose just the worst of him. Moral -- he had just gotten itself back up near the front in front like thirteenth. But this is a product of two pit road speeding penalties haven't hit your way back to front because he had a top five race car. Todd parrot once famously said and you can play back there with the squirrels and down something like that happen to him. Mark Martin lot of damage to his number five. Can biffle got hung together over their often turn to and I can get they couldn't get apart and it just broke mark right into the wall. See what she's two cars and sixteen -- from the get hung together right here. I -- market that -- horror. And he was trying to get down the pit road and you can say he's only down on the right front actually go a little -- for for the condition his car was Indy goes right up front Jeff Gordon. They just start stacking up so -- watch -- he sees an opening right here she -- gap right. They're and he got clipped a little bit I think he's okay it's big machines began up Carl Edwards each shot to get that nonevent card. -- -- On the left side damage to his story. Watch Jeff Gordon is nowhere to go and when he gets sideways that stacks of everything and everybody else behind him. Put another guy that did a great job can do there was a twelve -- -- Kozlowski did a great John Edwards doesn't damage to the front end. -- of 47. The modem Harvick made was a really pretty cool movie and you watching. He was gonna get some pretty serious damage here and Vietnamese did motivating me what you right in the middle right there and it's Clinton right career winning. Fortunate that's only gotten. This is where it starts. It's on the outside fifth. You see right here this stuff can get also. -- much Roy Jackson got a bunch of them that the punching guys really did an amazing job. -- Mostly gets it together to get a partner. Stewart he was able to get around that. In the shot right. Thank you work. -- -- Said it just mark was waved to fans the idea home right now. The card now that. Right right now like there. Eighth caution flag of the day with a 156 laps ago and Bristol. Under caution at Bristol in numerical order all of these cars received some damage. In the crash triggered by contact between Greg Biffle and Mark Martin. -- -- -- -- Maarten and back here with the five cars now might harm our. Trade deficit has passed along a message that that -- radio court apparently came -- from his helmet so he hears spotter. Walk us through what happens to your stamp going. I -- I needed to go I hated it godaddy.com. Guys. And I was a lot faster than those guys and Alice island and now. It -- came that you know I was on the brakes but we're hung together I would ISI is gonna show me off and it's just a shame that this. It is a -- they we add a part of it. I really believe that it in a win not know they do is blatant about labor ready -- -- -- -- tires back there just says yes and our staff and mistakes happen but that's a real bad deal -- -- out. You know that was Israel say I needed to go -- couldn't be later and -- later ran on the bottom and not. Had a bad straights aren't with garnering on the outside and it's got pinned up. I -- a lot. And they've pulled off that right front tire this of the upper control arm was broken just take you behind the Wal-Mart. Watch the sixth place car at the time of the accident he has now scored 33. 33. Behind the pit wall. As his Marcus Ambrose. Regan Smith. Several others under repair. David Reagan. This is how we -- that was so many cars don't back down on the racetrack in the race you normally don't get enough damage. That it puts you out you can -- it that you see all these things don't want and they'll be back out there. They'll have a little extra time because so they're making repairs to the safer barrier and the exit of turn it over to. Sorry go around here with the pick of the problems and start foam blocks are gonna drop down in there I don't think it's going to be did you do all take -- -- Zoom back here on the on the truck from.

Kurt Busch and Jimmie Johnson to bring them down bush reflects the outside lane here we go. Johnson's plane off just a little bit here. You know we'll. At least -- we even within Kurt Busch and look at McMurray looked at the inside boy he doping straight up to the bottom of that one. Crack and our northern almost -- -- -- -- -- -- Carl Edwards. And then 39 car Ryan Newman just didn't. Dale Earnhardt -- Remember yeah that pit road speeding -- not that many laps again yeah he would help win him back. But you do that -- and some pretty good grabbing a basic drive in here he is he made up all that time is about. This event until -- hearing room. Get benefit at Bristol for -- Whatever work without it really good guy doesn't know much about it. It's -- -- debate did get a way to do it. I got it -- it back I can't -- -- I -- probably brought everybody got different. Yeah. Listen -- for two years ago I. You Dale Earnhardt has senior pentagon isn't it juniors now in twelfth place trying to find its way back toward the front. Right now. Junior lacks -- three and a half seconds to the leader. And we've just gone back to green guy and he's got a good piece. Thank you dissident. Maintained his cool here UV OK that the top five storm that what he was -- right right here in sixth place before we get sent him now -- side by side to 56 Truex the 98 on hard. They have been having a whale of a battle for the last 2030 laps -- so. I don't think give it I don't think there's anybody that could save it Paul Menard is not to yeah. Most improved driver shortly handcuffed. That's Venezuela which. That's a battle for fifth on the right side Matt Kenseth in the seventy car just thought his crew chief Todd -- trying to battle love Jeff Burton and a 30 morning. But you're right -- in the 98 car Paul Menard I think we all felt like. If he can -- to these two short tracks -- feel that this group for real yeah. Junior looking inside I'm an arm wiggles just a little bit off the corner. The detention -- -- here that the SE about -- this year actually do it today. Somebody's faster hands get cold enough to get try to -- people leader and having this race and -- and really really smart that's what I. You don't doubt we have not committed all day long because he's just now starting to show little muscle -- -- on the bigger name in that green about 43 car AJ started back -- 23 this. I think he has now crack the top fifteen he just stayed out of trouble now he's working -- junior and an 88 car. Junior could not complete the pass them hard and fell victim Ryan Newman. Point Jeff Burton trying to work his way past Matt Kenseth and Tony Stewart in the fourteen. Is right there. -- smoke. Count him out this year and that's pretty good looking around he's got today it's battles for. Look at this movie was thinking. -- -- -- -- The team got off a term for so good that glass guy he's he's talking man -- can go down to the bottom but not worth. Nice thank you man actually go right to their but he's not worth it level closes up to -- That's a sucker over right there. The thing that amazes me if you can run inside and outside my dad. In it most short tracks again. You would just be -- the other the other way and that's not -- really the case here today. They can -- good moment of high and love. -- -- and movie information here and then in the stock will be very much longer. Thank goodness so much of this team doesn't trying to become oh yeah. That's how you feel -- -- Kansas displacing Kevin Harvick has appointed leaders Harvard's center. Several difficulties -- he's running back and sixteen. There's no question Tony is faster and and those talks have given up its accounting block these little box back there you know what detailed may have sinner like he is he really likes it begins. When we really trust those two guys I guess because it. I would say the -- kids and then even more so Jeff Burton -- two fellows that if anybody's gonna give you enough room on the racetrack for her car that that's too you know he's talking didn't. No alas this father goes tale that 31 of the seventy. If you land a -- and a man. Jimmy Johnson closing -- the leader. He and Kurt Busch have been the class of the field most of today. And this just all went ahead and a look at. Coming -- then you see right here. -- -- -- get -- now daddy gotta live up a little bit and think you'll be all right. And yet they remain seven tenths of a second behind Greg Biffle -- place. He over drove turn one and then last time you see bill forcing car wash up and racetrack later that essentially you become very impatient to get a little frustrated. Start travelling in a corner a little harder. Not a good idea it was all you do is get your tires were down at -- needle didn't go. 120 laps to go home. The rains predicted for about 4 o'clock today have no longer. One brief shower. Put us under caution for over twenty -- Perfect day for -- relief overcast and terribly -- tracks got a lot of grip. And Jeff Burton and 31 he's just he drove away from these two cars here they receive around theories pulled up next -- behind Greg Biffle sixteen. This important. They want for the first time. We needed sleep in -- -- identity -- that 48 is helping me. Jimmy has led to. Twice today for. Has -- -- 200 laps today. Steve. Who's hot sit this over Novak Jimmie Johnson we're not anywhere near the end here we got a 150 -- nobody who's the best closure you've seen in the and for a second round. Sort of. Jeff Burton is caught. Greg Biffle this perform. And most of these cars they have been out there about sixty laps police -- what we did have those caution laps after the vaccine probably got about. 43. You don't sit in the opening the show might -- Jeff -- city contracts and most tiring at Bristol and Washington's plan. Particularly when you have these greens like this we have had enough cautions kind of break it up but when you go along green here late today. You're hanging on for dear life -- in this race. Don't forget biffle ran 300 lunch yesterday. Kurt Busch leading Jimmie Johnson by half a second in the food city.
